Things I prayed for when I was young
That my father would love me like his only son
That my mother would be patient with me
My sister would not leave

And if my grandpa could see me beyond his grave
That he'd think his little man was so brave
That my hair would not stick up in weird places
And I'd be someone some day

Years go by so easily that sometimes I forget
Years go by and make me see that there's
No time for my regrets
No time for my regrets

Things I prayed for in my teens
That God would forgive all my evil deeds
That my father and my sister would come home
And my mum could meet our needs

And if my grandpa could see me beyond his grave
That he'd say a prayer for his familys sake
That my hair would not stick up in weird places
And I'd be someone someday

Years go by so easily and sometmes I forget
Years go by and make me se that there's
No time for my regrets
No time for my regrets, yeah

Things I prayed for now in my twenties
That God would still love me
And my dad would like his new family
That I could hug my sister
That my mum could rest
That my wife would still melt everytime we kissed

And if my grandpa has seen me beyond his grave
So cold and silent he has remained
That my hair would not fall out in weird places
And I'd be someone some day

Years go by so easily and sometimes I forget
Years go by and make me see that there's
No time for my regrets
These are the things I prayed

I'd be someone some day, yeah
I'd be someone some day
I'd be someone someday yeh
I'd be someone some day
I'd be somene some day
I would be someone someday
I'd be someone some day
